  1. Play a video with its original sounds during share screen

    I would like my phone, which is android 6.0.1 for now, to be able to perform a share screen where I can play a video with its original sounds. Currently, it does not play it with its sound. Presenting a video is part of my teaching methods to my students. One more thing I wish is allowing me to mute or unmute myself during video screen sharing, like Zoom on a computer. I use Skype weekly.

  4. Make the screen sharing easier

    Make the screen sharing easier to switch between screens... Example Google Meeting where the screen sharing is so much easier. What you see is exactly what your clients see..

  5. Active call window/modal

    Add an option in settings to switch off the active call modal.
    I.e. When I'm on a call or group call and I switch away from my Skype screen the small active call modal is always there. It is of no use to me, I understand it may be use to some so if this could be an option to show it or not, that would be marvellous.

  6. See your own subtitles

    When you turn on subtitles, you only see others' subtitles, but I think it would be better if you could see your own subtitles. This way you could see what others see.

  8. Separate Window for Screen Share and Video

    Please have separate windows for viewing video and content/screenshare. I want to be able to use multiple monitors to see video on one screen and the content on another.

  9. i suggest to a code that gives you some so called "hacks" but make it super hard to find the code.

    i suggest to a code that gives you some so called "hacks" but make it super hard to find the code. Also, make it extreme badge for someone who gets the code. And..make the "hacks" is good (put the hacks code into the "Share other links for others to join)

  10. Sharing of individual screens rather than the entire desktop screen

    The updated version of Skype does not support sharing individual screens or windows but rather just the entire desktop. This is not a good idea specifically if you are using Skype for teaching. This could create confusion for the users and at the same time pose a greater risk on data privacy of the one sharing the screen. Please return it ASAP!

  11. Privacy for Skype to Skype between parents interference during parenting time.

    Allow calls only to device I’m video calling. I want to stop my children and I from being watched on another device. For parenting time the children should have their privacy along with the parent having the call. Unsure if there is a way around this already in privacy but my 8 and 9 year old go to FL every year for half of the summer and their dad and step mom are watching our chat on another device. Not a good feeling for a mother. Thanks!

  13. I could get rid of goto meeting if I could choose a presenter and remote control shared screens

    when you share a screen, it would be nice to let others remote control it. for now I pay for goto meeting just for this feature. otherwise I wouldn't need it.

  14. Hello I think mirroring a camera should be available in your video setting.

    I am having a hard time presenting my presentation because I can't mirror my camera. I hope you fix it soon. Thank you!
